    Just two: Oakham Bishops Farewell and BOTW Salopian Blackwater Helix. Pale, hoppy and perfect for warmer weather. Three pints? No problem. Another winner from Salopian.

    When you do "catch it with that new barrel freshness" as you put it, all its components present,Bitterness,zesty citrus flavours and good conditioning, its almost unbeatable for a beer of its strength.

    A fine beer although Marble (Pint, Draft and W90 all at 3.9%), Oakham (Inferno 4%) and Blue Monkey (BG Sips 4%) may put themselves forward, amongst others. This might be worth a re-visit?

    BOTW is going to be Kelham Island Gentleman Death tried in THe Baum.

    A pitch black 6% Porter, very smooth and dangerous.

    This vote was amplified when I tried the beer again in Oddest Chorlton last week. Still excellent.

    Sorry, Moby. Somehow managed to completely overlook this. Have to say I agree with you.
